Hello, tim&fatima here...erm...Again!

Post: # 127693Post tim&fatima »

Hello everybody, yes i'm/we are back, well kind of, well we did not really go anywhere we were here at home all along.

i'm glad to see the old...er MATURE regulars are still here.

Well the thing is I started playing a little game on the comptery interwebby thing called "Tribal wars" oh dear it is terrible, its like really bad tv, you dont want to, but once you start you can't stop. well I went cold turkey and it has been 22 hours since my last attack! :cheers:

well, we still have the chickens. not all the same ones as we did back in march (last post).
We had just hatched some then so I think we were up to about 23. but now we have a respectable 7.
We are still married (to each other) Fatima still has her tatoo. "A" has finally started full time school, and i've shaved all my hair off (bad idea) but i think they will both grow back :lol:

Oh yeah, we have a new member of the family...we have another doggy. "A" was not content with having just one black lab. oh no, she wanted a white (golden) one as well, so I was bullied, yes, bullied into having another, so now we have a black one and a white one.

We continued to grow veggies through the year, our toms was a great succsess, as was our cucumbers, we still have our allotment, but, we are thinking that we may give it up at the end of the year, as "A" is now at school, i will go back to work full time.

oops that was a bit long. but i feel better for it.
And another thing. THERE IS TOO MANY RED WRIGGLY THINGS. I don't know where to start!!
see you later.
It's nice to be important,
But it's more important to be nice.

Hi T & F. Its good to see you backagain :hello2: . I can well understand. Once the gardening season starts I don't seem to keep up with anything either. This time of year is quite nice though - the weeds have slowed down and most of the hunter/gathering stuff is sorted and I've put the bees to bed for the last time. It's now time to repair walls, dig new beds, etc., etc., but without the pressure. Oh and the Friday night gatherings at the pub have just been re-instated. :drunken: ww
